Chuck Norris is an international television and film star and has starred in 23 motion pictures such as Delta Force, Code of Silence and Missing in Action, just to name a few. His television series “Walker, Texas Ranger”, ran for 81/2 years. With 203 episodes, is the most successful Saturday night series on CBS since “Gunsmoke”. Internationally, it is seen in more than 80 countries worldwide with an average of 1 billion viewers daily.
Norris first made his mark as a renowned teacher of martial arts and was a six-time undefeated World Professional Middle Weight Karate Champion. He is the first man from the Western Hemisphere in the over 4,500 year tradition of Tae Kwon Do to be awarded an eighth degree Black Belt Grand Master ranking. By the 1970’s he had revolutionized Martial Arts in the U.S. and created his own system called Chun Kuk Do (meaning “The Universal Way”) and is the Founder and Chairman of the United Fighting Arts Federation.
Chuck Norris is also a New York Times bestselling author of three books. They include Black Belt Patriotism: How to Reawaken America, and the 2004 autobiographical Against All Odds. Norris has also penned two works of fiction, “The Justice Riders” and “A Threat to Justice.” In 2006, he added “columnist” to his list of credits with the launch of his popular internet column on the independent news site WorldNetDaily.com. His weekly column is now widely syndicated and carried by Human Events and Townhall, among other outlets.
Modeling a life of health and fitness for more than five decades, Norris has promoted the importance of exercise by his endorsement of the Total Gym, a popular exercise machine that is sold internationally in more than 80 countries. Most recently he launched a syndicated weekly health and fitness column called C-Force to help inspire and improve the health and fitness of his readers by taking a holistic view of health-that wellness is obtained and maintained by treating ourselves as an integrated whole,
in mind, body and spirit.
A genuine internet phenomenon, Norris has become the subject of countless Paul Bunyan-type fictional “facts” of his exploits, submitted by fans. There are currently more than a million such “facts” floating around the internet. In November of 2009, he came out with The Official Chuck Norris Fact Book, focusing on 101 of his favorite facts and stories.
A very popular public speaker, Norris is a strong supporter of the NRA, supporting our 2nd amendment rights and was named Honorary Chairman of the NRA’s, “Trigger the Vote” campaign and has served as spokesperson for agencies such as The United Way and The Veterans Administration. Norris, an Air Force veteran, was named an Honorary Member of the Marine Corps in 2007, which was an incredible honor demonstrating the appreciation the Corps felt for his two “hand shake” tours of Iraq within a one year period.
